    Default Wilson Combat 10mm 1911

    I have just purchased a Wilson Combat 1911 in 10mm. I bought this gun because I wanted the ultimate combat handgun. My usual concealed carry handguns are the ruger sp101 .357 and the Springfield XDs .45. I have also been known to carry any one of my 1911s. Anyway, I chose the 10mm caliber over the .45 because while I love the .357, I also love 1911s. The 10mm is simply the best semiautomatic pistol cartridge that can surpass a .357 in a 1911 frame. I guess you can argue that I dont need it and the .45 is good enough, but this is meant to be the ultimate combat pistol, and so I decided to get it in the ultimate pistol caliber. I chose to get the Wilson Combat Tactixal Supergrade custom because it virtually allowed me to customize every single element of the gun so it is absolutely perfect. While it probably won't be my everyday carry gun, it definitely will ride with me a lot. I'll try to get some pictures up soon. If any of you own a Wilson combat, 10mm, or just want to know about it, let me know.

    Thanks. I own a ridiculous amount of 1911s, and all I can say is that the Wilson Combat is by far the best I have. I am so jealous of you going to SCI. I was planning on going but didn't make t.

    Tell me how you like the Sig. I've handled a few at the gun store and they feel good. I find that they are very similar to the Springfield TRP. I nearly bought one once because it was a limited POW edition. Unfortunately, when I came back it was gone.

    That's a real nice gun. I bought myself a Springfield Pro in 45 ACP last year, it's my carry gun, probably the last handgun I plan to buy. It's just so damn nice I'm spoiled now. Can't go wrong with a Wilson, top notch. 10mm is a nice caliber too!

    The Pro is a great 1911 and perfect for carry. You are also right on the spoiling. I don't even want to shoot my kimbers now.

    That Wilson is a fine pistol. The 10 is a great round, though be sure and use a rapidly expanding bullet or you get the pirate and your neighbor down the street. My current favorite 1911 is the Sig .45 C3. It has the commander length slide and officer's length grip. Super accurate and really concealable.
